Nick Cannon is not happy over NBC execs apparently discussing firing him over a racial joke he made during his stand up act. Nick posted on his Facebook Monday morning “He can no longer envision himself returning to emcee America’s Got Talent ever again. NBC threatened to terminate his contract because of a racial joke he made during his recent Showtime stand-up special, “Stand Up, Don’t Shoot.”

Nick, who has hosted the reality competition since 2009, “I felt like I was apart of the fabric of our great nation every summer, representing every culture, age, gender, and demographic,” he wrote. “Now for the rug to be pulled from underneath me and to be publicly reprimanded and ridiculed over a joke about my own race is completely wrong and I have to do something about it.”

“AGT” was the top-rated summer show on TV last year, with 11 million viewers and season 12 is set to begin filming next month.
